PATRIC, the bacterial bioinformatics database and analysis resource
TLDR
The Pathosystems Resource Integration Center (PATRIC) is the all-bacterial Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) and describes updates to the PATRIC since its initial report in the 2007 NAR Database Issue.
Characteristics of the nuclear (18S, 5.8S, 28S and 5S) and mitochondrial (12S and 16S) rRNA genes of Apis mellifera (Insecta: Hymenoptera): structure, organization, and retrotransposable elements
TLDR
The report eventually is expected to shed light on the evolution of the hymenopteran genome within higher insects, particularly regarding the relative maintenance of conserved rDNA genes, related variable spacer regions and retrotransposable elements.
Phylogeny of Gammaproteobacteria
TLDR
A telescoping multiprotein approach is applied to the phylogeny of the large bacterial class Gammaproteobacteria, based on a set of 356 protein families for the whole class and even larger sets for each of four cohesive subregions of the tree.
PATRIC: the Comprehensive Bacterial Bioinformatics Resource with a Focus on Human Pathogenic Species
TLDR
The major features available at PATRIC are summarized, dividing the resources into two major categories: organisms, genomes, and comparative genomics and (ii) recurrent integration of community-derived associated data.
Insights into social insects from the genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera
TLDR
The genome sequence of the honeybee Apis mellifera is reported, suggesting a novel African origin for the species A. melliferA and insights into whether Africanized bees spread throughout the New World via hybridization or displacement.
A Rickettsia Genome Overrun by Mobile Genetic Elements Provides Insight into the Acquisition of Genes Characteristic of an Obligate Intracellular Lifestyle
TLDR
Evidence is presented that conserved rickettsial genes associated with an intracellular lifestyle were acquired via MGEs, especially the RAGE, through a continuum of genomic invasions, making REIS one of the most plastic and repetitive bacterial genomes sequenced to date.
Plasmids and Rickettsial Evolution: Insight from Rickettsia felis
TLDR
A new rickettsial classification scheme is proposed with the addition of a fourth lineage, transitional group (TRG) ricksettsiae, that is unique from TG and SFG ricktsiae and harbors genes from possible exchanges with AG ricketsiae via conjugation.
A Coxiella-Like Endosymbiont Is a Potential Vitamin Source for the Lone Star Tick
TLDR
The CLEAA genome was sequenced and it was revealed that CLEAA is a close relative of C. burnetii, but was not derived from it, indicating that it is an essential endosymbiont of A. americanum.
Rickettsia Phylogenomics: Unwinding the Intricacies of Obligate Intracellular Life
TLDR
A core of 752 rickettsial OGs was identified, depicting the essential Rickettsia genes, and non-representative OGs, as well as OGs comprised of several gene families typically involved in microbial pathogenicity and/or the acquisition of virulence factors, fall predominantly within C2OG distributions.
Extensive diversity of Rickettsiales bacteria in two species of ticks from China and the evolution of the Rickettsiales
TLDR
A single tick species is identified that harbors multiple species of Rickettsiales, and extensive genetic diversity of these bacteria is uncovered in two tick species from Xinjiang, suggesting the presence of potentially novel species in ticks in Xinjiang.
